Shall we include the boundaries? A reflective appreciation of the book No Boundary by Ken Wilber

Shall we include the boundaries? A reflective appreciation of the book No Boundary by Ken Wilber By Cees Hoogendijk   Abstract Imagine, for a moment, a world in which we forgot to invent the word boundary… Ken Wilber gives us a clear picture of the social construct we call ‘border’, how we can choose to [...]

I love to be on this journey with you – AI Magazine 5 is uit

Men zegt wel eens dat kinderen tijdens de schoolvakantie letterlijk en figuurlijk groeien. De vrijheid, de zon, het spelen, en alle nieuwe ontdekkingen; het lijkt wel of ze meer leren dan in het gehele schooljaar daarvoor. Zelf heb ik een vergelijkbaar gevoel over de afgelopen zomer. Het mee-maken van de World Appreciative Inquiry Conference 2015 [...]

Better than the World (in memory of Joost Zwagerman)

Last week my country was shocked by the news that a famous, passionate, 51 year old Dutch writer took his own life. I’ll skip the details of his research about suicide, and a recent television interview in which he stated that he was cured from his illness called depression. Apparently this illness can pop up [...]

Appreciative Inquiry #060: Practice in Practice (count your blessings)

[from book part 7 - APPRECIATE YOUR SELF] “It’s certainly possible to get by in life without dedication. The craftsman represents the special human condition of being engaged.” (Richard Sennett, philosopher.) “The better your technique, the longer you can rehearse without becoming bored.” (Isaac Stern, violinist.) At what point are you ‘good’ at something? It is said [...]

Appreciative Inquiry #057: Attention causes Growth

[from book part 7 - APPRECIATE YOUR SELF] It’s a typical, valuable AI motto: “Everything that you give attention to, will grow.” If you focus on a problem, the problem gets bigger. If you focus on what’s going well already, this good behaviour will grow. It’s sort of an underlying rule of Appreciative Inquiry. So I was [...]

Appreciative Inquiry #055: Parrèsia

[from book part 7 - APPRECIATE YOUR SELF] How does you positive core speak? A wise man once said, “Even if the majority say you are wrong, you still can be right.” Parrèsia, in more correct English parrhesia, is a classical term for ‘speaking freely, speaking truly, speaking by the heart’. Another very wise man, the French [...]

Appreciative Inquiry #053: A Practical Profound Mind

[from book part 7 - APPRECIATE YOUR SELF] Educating your Heart, by Training your Mind. This is the title of part two of HHDL’s book Beyond Religion. It would be too much of an honour to call me a Buddhist. This would suggest that I studied and meditated a lot more than I actually do. I’m more [...]

Appreciative Inquiry #052: The Art of Living

[from book part 7 - APPRECIATE YOUR SELF] If you would ask me now, I would say that the art of living lies somewhere between self-ish and self-less. And probably nearer to -less than to -ish… Some twelve years ago, working for quite a large corporate company, I was invited for a two-day ‘change management course’. I [...]

Appreciative Inquiry #051: Building up ground state

[from book part 7 - APPRECIATE YOUR SELF] Twenty years ago, my wife and I sat in the audience of an opera recital, organized by the company I was working for at that time. It occurred to me that the opera singer had some funny gestures and they never left my memory. Although I’ve long forgotten what [...]

Appreciative Inquiry #049: How am I becoming?

[from book part 7 - APPRECIATE YOUR SELF] When we designed and developed our AI100 learning journey, we wanted to pay equal attention to our three main threads; AI as an organizational change method, AI as high quality relational practice and AI as a basic belief system. After providing the basic picture of all this, we would [...]
